chloe hamaker (dear daughters 8)
What if your family turned completely upside down three weeks before your wedding? And then you discover a few days later that your dad was leading a double life? How do you function when everything feels absolutely surreal? Like you’re in a bad movie?
Meet Chloe Hamaker. She walked through a dark time in her life and God not only brought her through, He brought joy and peace and light into her life.
Chloe is a graphic designer and brand consultant. She’s also a social media coach, small business owner champion and a brand/presentation specialist. But to me, this girl is pure sunshine. She is a dear daughter that I’ve known since she was in second grade. We met when I was teaching drama at Regents School of Austin and re-met at IF:Gathering several years ago. I love Chloe’s work because she doesn’t advocate a bunch of fancy marketing techniques; instead, she helps you discover how to be authentically ‘you’ online.
Hear Chloe’s inspiring story and listen as she gently encourages artists and entrepreneurs to share their work.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
Do you have a Big God Dream? Start to write out some of what that looks like.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Psalm 40:2
God gives beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise instead of despair.
What does it look like in your life to honor your parents?
